NYCC: Good Omens panel is a good omen for Good Omens

Review: Apocalypse Rising

Apocalypse Rising is such a banal, generic title. It’s a word combination that filters straight to the back of your mind. It sounds so tedious and lackluster that you would wonder why anyone made it and if anyone would be dumb enough ...

Fantasia 2018 Review: Tokyo Vampire Hotel

Tokyo Vampire Hotel has a scene in which a legless Geisha vampire who feeds people to the hotel through her vagina laughs maniacally as a fountain of blood streams from an open wound into her mouth and heavy metal music pulses and pounds in...

Review: November

Imagine if you will a rotating wheel formed of wood and axes with a steam-breathing cow skull filling its center. In stuttering animation, this contraption rolls across a hill to a shed where a cow is chained. The contraption uses its ax-le...

Review: Bright

Buddy-cop movies: you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, am I right? No, it turns out, not at all. Bright, Netflix’s most expensive film to date ($90M), directed by David Ayer and starring Will Smith  and Joel...

Review: Thor: Ragnarok

While I like the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall, I've never been that interested in the Thor movies. I love the Walt Simonson run on The Mighty Thor, but the previous live-action films featuring the God of Thunder never really appealed t...

Review: The Dark Tower

If you've read Stephen King's prolific Dark Tower saga you know it's a weird, wonderful, flawed, brilliant, mess of an epic that touches so many genres it's hard to classify it at all. It bounces from western to science fiction to...

Our first look at Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time left me a little underwhelmed. I just wasn't seeing the sort of magic that the book captured. The first trailer, however, is bringing back my excitement. This looks pretty visually com...

I got your OATS Shorts right here

I have to admit when Neill Blomkamp said he was going to be releasing a bunch of new short films for free through both Steam and YouTube I was skeptical about the quality of them or how much I would enjoy them. This is not to say that I don...

 
 
Review: Okja photo

Review: Okja

Bong Joon-Ho's Okja is a chimera of genre and tone. It's a lovable mutant like its titular super pig--the best super pig, we're told, the superlative like something out of Charlotte's Web. Which makes sense. As a director, Bong has avoided ...

HBO's Game of Thrones Season 7 has a real trailer, finally

While HBO released a teaser spot for Game of Thrones season 7 two months ago, it was more of a narrative reminder of what's to come based off of existing soundbites. No new footage was revealed. This was a problem for the rabid GoT fan, as ...
